Leonie and Stephen from Australia; James and Edric from Singapore; Atsuko and I met up in Omotesando, Tokyo.
Thanks Edric who led us around (sometimes visitors from overseas know better about where to go.)
This is the ideal number of people when to sketch together, go restaurant, and chat. Had fun time.

Last weekend in Matsudo was a cultural festival Bon Odori Festival called Last Summer Fest.
I met with Arnie from France, before he got home and drew a few sketches of Tojotei historical garden and festival atmosphere.
I was also working as a volunteer this days, selling ice with sweet syrop.
Capturing people in motion at Japanese drum show held in Tokyo. It is always challenging, could be a kind of bad manner to those performers...but this is how I keep the moments otherwise the motion and memories disappear just like seeing fireworks.

Today I went to a post office and hear a strong sound of crushing concrete. That was a site cleaning. Scrap and build is a city policy in Japan, which literally mean to crash building and build anew. On average, Japanese housing lives only around 30 years. It's interesting to learn about what is the reason for that and how such a wastefulness could be overcome.

Day ago I went to see ramen shop in Matsudo, which is famous for "abura soba". It is called Tonikaku ramen. Someone told me, they are one of the best in Japan! Many tourists visit this place to eat ramen. I ate it, it was too big for me. But I liked fat noodles and oily taste.
